my daughter is 7years plus. she is studying in class iii. she writes very slow. everyday she comes home with incomplete work. in extra curricular activities. someone suggested me to get the iq-test done. can some please suggest me wat to do
hi anjna, isnt she a bit young to be in class 3?
slow writing can have many reasons (like poor eye sight, poor dexterity, poor finger strength, poor writing posture, lack of interest in studies etc). IQ tests are done when mental retardation is suspected. how is she generally? an active chirpy bubbly child? or is she little slow in all her chores? how are her self-help skills (like eating, dressing up, engaging into activities etc) developed? how is she health-wise? how is her social life? answers to these questions will help me guide u better.
take care :)
my daughter is actually september born. thus in a way she is the youngest one in her class. There is no problem with eye sight, fingure strength or writing posture. however she is lacking inteset in the studies, she is also facing problem whe she has to copy something from blackboard/book. she is stubborn, she creates lot of problem in getting up or getting ready for school, for every small thing, we have to tell her number of times. Health wise, ther are no issues. she also can't stick to one thing at a time. she looses interest quite often. she wants to make friends but she ends up with something or the other. only 2 friends are very close to her heart.
mental retardation is not there. but we strongly feel that she loses the focus. she is very good in mathematics. otherwise she is an average child on the school
Please help me out if you could
you can get her tested to 'specific learning difficulties'..the test will give you details of her strengths and weaknesses and then you can proceed accordingly.
i know a good special educator, who is in faridabad right now, and will be moving to gurgaon by month-end. if u want, u can get in touch with her for the test..i personally dont know anyone else, but i am sure there are many special educators in delhi, who can help you out on this.
you may also want to meet a psychologist to councel your daughter directly.
Your post mentioned about a good special educator moving to Gurgaon by May end 2010. Can you share the details for this special educator? I am in Gurgaon and we are looking for a special educator in Gurgaon.

Hi, Aanchal/ Anjana,
Hi, My son is 9 yrs+, & he dont like to write, his school work is always incomplete, never finish his homework, just not interested in studies. Had a talk with teachers as well as counsellors. According to them he is bright chid, know everthing & like to answer orally only instead of writting. His IQ level is 120. i Take him 3 days a week for remedial treatment. my son says he wants to fix everything that are broken, he loves doing that. Speak verry less but always experimenting everything. Expers says : He has some learning disability as far as writting is concern. Do anyone know any school in Puna, who supports & help such students. Pls help me out. Thank you.
i dont know anyone in pune..you should find out a psychologist there and get him tested for learning disability instead of relying on vague diagnosis by anyone. what kind of remedial are you taking him to? many times, learning problems have emotional roots. a good psychologist should be able to guide you properly.
if you come to bangalore sometime, you can come to me for assessments.

The same problem is faced by my son who is 9+ , a bright child with above average IQ and diagnosed as dyslexic. He is taking remedial help as well as occupational therapy sessions for his writing problem. It has helped him a lot. You need to assess your child first to rule out the possibilty of learning disability and to know his pattern of learning. The schools as well as educational boards provide lot of consessions to the students facing learning difficulties.
I am in bangalore and would like to contact you to discuss similar issues faced by my son. Kindly let me have your contact details.
Hi Anjna, did u find any solution for ur daughter, if so can u please help me the same problem and issues with my 7+ year old son. I don't know how to handle.
